Journalist (Russian): “So he was looking [for people]?”

SOT, Survivor (Russian): “He didn’t know that I was there; he was just looking for the people. I heard how he was dragging bodies. I saw how he was finishing them off. All of the wheezing. I heard everything. How this scum was washing his hands after. I heard everything. I saw how he killed two people.”

Nine people were shot dead after domestic conflict in Redkino village, Tver region early on the morning of Sunday.

"He was very serious. He was either hitting people in the face with the gun or shooting them point blank. There are bodies just without half of their face," said the only survivor, recounting the events.

The suspected assailant was detained by the police after they were called to the scene.

During the night from June 3rd to 4th the resident of Moscow was having a drink with acquaintances. An argument broke out during the evening and the assailant left the group, before returning with a shotgun.

Three women's bodies and five men's bodies were found inside the house, another woman's body was found in the trunk of the suspect's car.

The person who called the police managed to survive by hiding under a blanket in the bedroom.

"When he came inside, he first killed the couple. Then he killed a 90 year-old grandma who was a WW2 veteran. I just managed to hide under the blanket. I was just lucky, but he entered the room twice," victim said.

After the suspect was detained, the Investigative Committee started immediately working on establishing what exactly occurred.
